Legal Question

Asked on: 9/22/13, 1:53 am

my doctor was going to charge a $75 fee to sign Flma paperwork. He then said he would sign the forms and waive the fee, but then I would have to find another doctor. The doctor in question here is a psychiatrist that had just started new meds with a lot of potential side effects. This doctor's actions in this matter make clear (from my point of view) that $75 is more important than a patient. Isn't that a violation of the Hippocratic Oath? Is it legal for the doctor to do this, given the fact that he just had prescribed new meds to me with a higher than average potential for severe reaction?
